Applications are filed with the AUC to provide the information needed to review merits of a newly proposed utility project, evaluate financial data to determine rates, or make a complaint regarding energy market activities or rules. Applications are also filed to request amendments to existing facility licenses or for other requests which fall under the jurisdiction set out in the Alberta Utilities Commission Act or any other enactment under which the Commission is charged.

Applications are expected to be filed electronically through the AUC's eFiling System. In order to file applications through the eFiling System, applicants or their representatives require an account.
